A wise friend once told me: “Beautiful stationery is one of life’s greatest pleasures”.

With this in mind, and in honour of National Stationery Week (25th April – 1st May 2016), I thought I would pen my ultimate edit of the most stylish stationery brands.

  1. Kikki.K

As expected from contemporary Swedish design, enjoy the clean lines, form, function and wonderful simplicity.


  1. Kate Spade

New York’s top fashion house has also mastered its own stationery haute couture that makes your desk look designer.


  1. Paperchase

Think colour, creativity and clever slogans (also, don’t forget to pick up a loyalty card when you’re next in store).


  1. Filofax

Still going strong after more than 90 years of crafting the most desirable selection of covers, cases and organisers for your personal information.


  1. Not on the High Street

Granted, this isn’t technically a stationery brand, but I think the team is worthy of a place on the list: many independent stationers partner with the site to launch their own brands, plus the retailer is a key note speaker on World Stationery Day (27th April 2016).



From doodles and diaries to narrations and notebooks, let the story start with your stationery.
